You know, maybe everyone got it wrong.
I’m in Green Bay right now and in the spring, everyone lost their minds when the Packers drafted Jordan Love in the first round and the supposed “successor” to Aaron Rodgers, instead of giving him more weapons to score with.
But at 4-0 with Rodgers playing MVP level football, maybe the club knew that their quarterback could score points with essentially anyone and wanted an insurance policy.
Okay. That’s still a stretch. But about not having any weapons..
Let’s start from the beginning.
Devin Funchess. WR. Opted out.
Davante Adams. WR. Injured.
Alan Lazard (not really even considered a weapon before he balled out last weekend). WR. Injured.
That leaves Aaron Jones, who is one of the best backs in the league (fight me) as the only “weapon” left.
There ther is “Big Bob” Tonyan. An unknown tight end, who caught three touchdowns in the Monday night win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Are you kidding me?
In reality, I’m probably giving Packers GM Brian Gutekunst too much credit. But at this point, there is no reason to believe that Aaron Rodgers can’t win with anyone Matt LaFleur is comfortable throwing out there.
For Packer fans, it’s glorious.
For the rest of the team, it’s ridiculous.
Although a real test is coming. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are next, and Brady has absolutely no shortage of weapons.
But my goodness, it’s probably time to stop throwing any doubts at this roster until they actually lose.
Aaron Rodgers has proven to be that good.
